That may please you. It displeases me.


Well, you'll be crying in your soup tonight with your local election result: a doubling of the Conservative majority! Never mind, it's only politics! I'll raise a glass of cab sauv for you later on. ;)

The Lib Dems were up by 2,575 votes in my division, to win a seat they've never held before.

Never mind, etc..

And in my area, Lib Dems made gains, including from tories. So did the tories. Labour lost seats. UKIP lost all theirs.

So are you pleased? I'm assuming the LD's took the seat from Labour?

Considering that the LDs are the only anti-Brexit party, they don't seem to have done as well overall (given that not every result has been declared yet) as they really expected, from what I'm reading.

I read that vote share nationally has been:

Tories 38%
Labour 27
LD 18
UKIP 5

I cannot recall a General Election 5 weeks after local elections, as now. Yesterday's results may have an effect. The most obvious I can see is the collapse of the UKIP vote, the tories being the main beneficiaries.

The LD vote share is more than predicted in opinion polls.

So from whom did they take it, then?

I think there were two in the early 80s.

Living in Calderdale, the local elections have passed us by entirely.

Well, that was quite a turn-up, then! So you must surely be pleased? Or not?
